2799 Tasting Notes
Thank you to VariaTEA for sending me the rest of her sample pouch in our most recent tea trade.
This is a nice rooibos base of mixed green and red rooibos, although it tastes mostly like red rooibos. I can taste some berry flavour (|mostly raspberry). Hints of vanilla, sweet dry hay, minerals (typical rooibos flavours). It is a bit plain, but definitely not a bad cup.
Flavors: Berry, Raspberry, Rooibos, Vanilla
Thank you to VariaTEA for the sample!
I coldbrewed it this morning (1 tsp leaf, 500 mL cold water, 10 minutes) and really enjoyed it. I can confirm that that “America’s Birthday Cake” (American version) and “Birthday Cake” (Canadian version) taste exactly the same. The only difference is that the US version has star shaped sprinkles of red/white/blue while the Canadian version has normal rod-shaped sprinkles in a rainbow of colours.
Mmm I love the cakey, custard, birthday cake icing, and caramel flavours in this. Just so good.
Flavors: Cake, Caramel, Custard, Pancake Syrup, Rooibos, Sugarcane, Sweet, Vanilla
Thank you to VariaTEA for the share!
Good green rooibos base with rose petals, green fruity flavours (honey dew, green melon). It is very fragrant, a decent iced drink this evening when it’s too hot to exist above ground.
Flavors: Green Melons, Honeydew, Melon, Rooibos, Rose
